She then showed how she cleans the machine with two teaspoons of citric acid.

The mother simply adds the ingredient to the detergent dispenser, closes the door and runs a quick wash cycle while it is empty.

“Wow, it’s so clean,” she said, showing the newly twinkling device.

“You’ll be amazed at the difference.”

And others were quick to agree with the method.

“Citric acid is the main ingredient in most dishwasher cleaners,” explains one man.

Others said citric acid can be replaced with vinegar and baking soda for a similar result.

“Baking soda, yes. I do this regularly. I also like to add vinegar. Leaves no odor and really cleans the dishwasher. Better yet, it takes away the weird smell that a dishwasher can sometimes have,” said one mother.
